High directivity 0302 thin film couplers for WiFi bands, in distribution

August 15, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
AVX’ high directivity 0302 thin film couplers for WiFi bands, including the latest, tight tolerance 0302 component are now available through distribution.

The WiFi band couplers are based on multilayer integrated thin film (ITF) technology, which provides the miniature components with high frequency performance across the WiFi spectrum (2,400-5,905 MHz) and rugged construction for reliable automatic assembly. Available in 0302, 0402, and 0603 packages, each of which exhibit identical electrical performance, AVX's WiFi band couplers also feature land grid array (LGA) packaging technology, the benefits of which include: inherently low profile, self alignment during reflow, excellent solderability, low parasitics, and effective heat dissipation.

AVX’s high directivity couplers for WiFi bands are rated for an operating temperature range spanning -40 up to +85C; and are 100% tested for electrical parameters. Part numbers are CP0302A5425ENTR and, for tight tolerance, CP0302P5425ENTR.
